They’re expensive, I know. The police motorcycle training courses cost hundreds of dollars, but I think it would be very worth it. Regardless of how someone feels about police, nobody can deny the kind of skills that police motorcycle riders have.
Rider Magazine recently did a profile of Quinn Redeker, a police motorcycle rider in Southern California. Here’s one of the videos.
The best part is that the article says he started on a Honda Nighthawk. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess he started on the 250cc instead of what I’m on, the 750cc, because a 15 year old would have a harder time riding the 750cc as a first bike than a 250cc (which is commonly used in the motorcycle riding courses through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation).
Ride Like a Pro Indiana is my most likely place to get training. It’s $156 there, you can check it out if you want. Some of the other classes I’ve found are upwards of $700. (site is not mobile responsive, so view on a desktop)
